Daisy Hill ELC would like to respectfully acknowledge the Yugambeh people, the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we live. We also recognise those whose ongoing effort to protect and promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures will leave a lasting legacy for future Elders and leaders.
Enrolment updates – if you have changed addresses, phone numbers, contacts or email addresses in 2019 please let us know so we can update our records.
Notice periods – 2 weeks notice whenever you are requesting to withdraw your child from care or reducing your child's days, or going on holidays.
Pickups and drop-offs – If your child needs to be picked up by someone new, please let the centre know prior every new face will be required to provide us with photo ID on arrival.
Medicine – If your child requires medicine prescribed by a doctor during the day, it must be in its original bottle and clearly labelled with your child's name. The medicine must be handed to one of our educator's members on arrival at the centre. It must not be left in your child's bag and then please fill in your child's medication form. If your child requires regular dosages of paracetamol, we believe that they are unfit for normal care and should be cared for by a parent or family member at home.
LOOSE PART PLAY...Can you help us?
We need your recyclables
Loose parts can be natural or synthetic. It is helpful to think of loose parts as something that will help children inspire imagination and creativity on their own terms and in their own unique way.
Loose parts create endless possibilities and invite creativity. For example, if a child picks up a rock and starts to play, most likely that rock can become anything the child wants it to be. Imagination, creativity, curiosity, desire, and need are the motivation of loose parts.
Loose parts are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, and taken apart and put back together in multiple ways. Loose parts can be used alone or combined with other materials. There is no set of specific directions for materials that are considered loose parts. The child is the direction.
Feel free to come in and take part in our Easter Bonnet Parade and Easter Egg hunt!
